Well, first of all I am so thankful for all of the support and friendship that I have been blessed with on MS! Today my Bf told me that he has destroyed the "bad" computer that he used specifically for viewing porn... I asked for this a few weeks ago, and to know that it's dead gives me a great sense of pride for him and happiness for both of us. he actually saved a little bit so we could destroy together... smile I want to open windows and scream "the porn computer is dead!!! Yippy!!" I'm not sure how I could navigate this without everyone, so thanks again! There is always hope!!!

Sally,

That's huge! Hugs to both of you. I read in article in a woman's magazine about relationships that said that being supportive of your guy when he triumphs is more important than being there for him when he's hurting/down. According to the expert it reenforces the behavior and makes him feel that he's valued by one of the most important people in his life. It's really nice to hear you can both celebrate in this great victory over his vices. Yah for you guys!

Thanks! I have shared my sadness...was so happy to share a little happiness
Sonia, that's interesting article cause I kind of wanted to throw a "progress party" smile but also didn't want to overload him with emotion. Expressed how proud and loved/respected I felt by his actions and tried not to make too big deal..but for me was pretty big deal. Wasn't sure exactly how to celebrate progress... I'm probably over thinking....

Hi Sally,

the article was originally in cosmo. But it was reposted in the link below. I think every relationship is different but Ive tried to use the general principles with my husband and so far it's been positive:
